News is that Pep’s going to Bayern Munich, Carlos has been banned from driving, and it’s snowing. Great article from Stuart Brennan on financial foul play (thanks Tony) in last night’s MUEN – why aren’t our club fighting against it? All quiet on the transfer front. Anyway, weather permitting it’s Fulham tomorrow, here’s the It’s A Fix extract :
23) SATURDAY JANUARY 19TH : FULHAM (HOME) KO 3PM
11th season in the Prem. No silverware. Recent connection Mark Hughes. 56th league meeting
This season so far : they’re in 13th place with 25 points from 22 games and 2 wins 4 draws and 5 losses away from home.
At the Cottage in September it was a 2-1 City win. They went ahead with a dubiously awarded penalty converted by Petric (20). Aguero equalised (43) and supersub Dzeko clinched it in the 87th minute.
Crowd was 25,698 with 1,794 Blues
In the Capital One Cup : They lost 1-0 at Sheffield Wednesday in the 2nd rd
In the FA Cup they drew with Blackpool 1-1 .at home in the 3rd rd. but won the replay 2-1 and face the rags and if they win the replay face the rags away in the 4th rd.
Form at home v Fulham: Last season it was the 3 -0 home win in the snow (irony alert) with goals from Aguero (10P), Baird (30 OG) Dzeko (72) Crowd was 46,963 with 741 Cottagers
For City it’s : WDDLLWLDEDW
Comment : Mid table form for Fulham this season, and results seem to depend on whether Berbatov (Keep calm and pass me the ball) can be arsed or not. Let’s hope it’s or not today.
